Mediation is a flexible and creative process that helps people find mutually acceptable resolutions to their issues and concerns. The mediator is an impartial party who uses the process of mediation to help participants communicate effectively, explore underlying interests and craft constructive outcomes.

Family conflict mediation gives people who are divorcing or separated and co-parenting a creative alternative to the family courts. This alternative dispute resolution option is a cooperative and constructive way to resolve differences and plan for the future. 

Mediation Center offers several professional continuing education courses that are eligible for CE (Continuing Education) or CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credit. 

Mediation Center training can be tailored for organizations or groups.
